Ukraine is one of the most mine-affected countries in the world. Since the start of the War in Donbas in 2014, the eastern part of the country has been littered with landmines and unexploded ordnance. Over two thousand people have been injured or killed by these deadly devices, accounting for 40% of all civilian casualties of the conflict. Every day, people who have already suffered from years of on-going conflict, continue to fall victim.

Deminers of The HALO Trust remove mines and explosive devices so that further accidents are prevented and people can safely use their land. Five million square meters have already been cleared, but they will need to continue for at least another decade to make Ukraine mine-free.
